The Exercise as Treatment for Chronic Disease - What is the Evidence conference took place on the 7th of May 2015 on the Gold Coast, hosted by The Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice and The Collaborative Research network: Advancing Exercise and Sports Science. Exercise is highly effective, but poorly used, treatment for a number of conditions including cancer fatigue, cardiac rehabilitation, graded exercise for Chronic Fatigue Sundrome, oeoarthritis, obesity, low back pain, falls prevention and diabetes.

Speakers were invited to provide the evidence and rationale for the different types of exercise for different clinical conditions, practical tips on the “how to” of different disease-specific exercise regimes, evidence of a variety of clinical conditions where exercise has been found to be most effective and discuss some of the important cognitive, social, and logistical issues that form part of an effective “exercise prescription”.
